way. he is not the sweet talker that tim geithner that republicans are. the easy thing about him, i think you are right. he is far more ideological than that, he is not like tim geithner. he is head of the new york fed. he is well versed in the new york currency and you have a life long budgeteer. can i add to that? i want to say something about out going. i have the highest regard for them. his financial knowledge was excellent. his knowledge of the whole banking arena. and i'll tell you this too, while i disagreed with him on fiscal issues. he and i had a great personal relationship. what i understand is, he does not have a personal relationship and doesn't know how to deal with people on the other side of the i'll. and that on top of his personal experience to me makes this a poor choice. >> on financial experience i'll grant you some points. this is a guy who has been negotiating complicated deals for 20 years. on the hill in the reagan years, and because there were these tough opepisodes, i would reall take that off your list. >> according to that book, he helped sabotage, he w
. tim geithner expected to leave . jack lu is the leading candidate. how would you vote on lu? >> guest: i would have to look at his record and listen to what he has to say. i tell you my view on any treasury secretary would be that i would want to hear real proposals for growth. the whole debate about the fiscal cliff talking about taxes and spending. noticeably absent from the equation is growth and the biggest economic problem of the last four years is dismal economic growth and under barak obama our economy has grown 1.5 percent a year for years and that is less than half the historical adane. >> john: i would like to get into that in a second. do you share the distaste of the jack lu and the way he conducted his self in the diabetic ceiling debate in 20len. a lot of people said he was arrogant. >> guest: i was not there and i have not dealt with the man and so i will keep an open mind. with any treasury secretary nominee, my view will be looking to the substance, and this is not a popularity contest. this is about fixing the problems that are affecting millions of americans. you kn
treasury secretary tim geithner said he figured out a way to keep the government defaulting on the debt for two months? not so fast. a new analysis by the bipartisan policy center says the u.s. may default a month earlier than expected. they say the government will likely run out of money to pay its bills between february 15th and march 1st. we hit the $16.4 trillion debt limit on december 31st. the treasury department said they were taking "extraordinary measures" to put off default. the debt ceiling debate is set to be the next big showdown in washington. both republicans and democrats have vowed to hold firm in their position. >>> and speaking of government spending, a report published monday says the obama administration spent $18 billion on immigration enforcement last year, more than on all the other federal law enforcement agencies combined and 15 times greater than immigration spending in 1986. the nonpartisan research group the migration policy institute says immigration has become the government's highest law enforcement priority. among those likely to be unhappy with that rep
is nominated to replace tim geithner. i want to get into the gun control. the results of the rasmussen poll, 51% of americans now support stricter gun laws. when asked would posting an armed guard in every school makes schools more safe, 48% said yes and 53% said they would feel safer with an armed guard at school versus no adults with guns. castigatederre was cassty for suggesting that. >> the american people are quite smart in that poll. wayne la pierre was saying armed guards instead of controls on guns. the american people are more supportive of gun control. you know, if you go back and you look at studies and you impact of gun control. there aren't a lot that show that it works in it terms of celling violence. there is one case where it did work and that is australia where are there was a mass shooting in the '90s. 35 tourists were killed and they put in an assault weapons ban that was much stricter than it was here and did a buyback program. politically i agree it would be tough sledding here but at least get a lot of those guns that put multiple bullet holes in the children at newtown ou
they want to make will be on the debt ceiling. and ironically, i think if as tim geithner did, the secretary of the treasury, float this idea of abolishing the law that requires a congressional vote, that sort of the ultimate threat that the president has. whether he can get that through or not. but that's the ultimate nightmare for the tea party. >> quickly both of you gentlemen, i want your take on the filibuster reform that is pending. there is a lot of commentary being given in the senate about what should be done. would this make it a toxic atmosphere, eugene, if harry reid goes for the full ball of wax and really smokes them out the way they have been filibustering and changes the rule? what does that do to debt ceiling negotiations, if anything? >> well, i think it probably exacerbates the tensions and the bad feelings in the senate, and where the feelings are not that bad right now. i don't know that he will try to push forward on that. >> what than, howard? >> i think he might try it. i think he is being pushed to try it by liberal constituencies who might see that as a payback for
, the mask is off the white house. there's no pretense that they have an interest in spending and when tim geithner's first offer in the negotiations was $1.6 trillion in new revenue, raise the debt ceiling with impunity and have more stimulus spending, that unbridled foolishness that has jarred the gop and the house. so those sort of shutdown questions become easier to coalescing. >> so it's a yes? it's on the table, is that right? >> well, as you and i have talked before, my home state is illinois, which is an example of what not to do. they chose revenues at a state level, didn't deal with the underlying spending drivers and what happened? higher than average unemployment, more per capita debt than any other state in the union almost and been downgraded twice. $7 billion in unpaid bills after the revenues come in. so i'm sensing just in talking to a lot of colleagues today and over the past couple of days a higher level of interest in going much further than they have ever gone before. >> last one, are all revenues off the table as far as you and the house leadership is concerned? >> ye
secretary boss tim geithner had to improve what his signature looked like. it was kind of scrawling too. in order to fit on the money he improved it. white house press secretary jay carney was asked about lew's hand writings and whether he is practicing his signature. koorney said, not that i'm aware of. jenna: you remember grade school where they give you lines to follow to practice your penmanship? jon: one would think. jenna: how is your penmanship? jon: i think it is readable, shows my name but my penmanship is pretty awful. jenna: we may need to do a close-up shot. jon: i don't like to bright. the brain works faster than the hand. >> we'll see, show you the improvement if there is one to jack lew's signature when we get it. meantime we'll move onto this other story. right now to the dangerous flu outbreak really spreading throughout this country. 44 states are now reporting widespread illness. take a look at that map! almost all red. hospitals are reporting severe overcrowding. some forcing ambulances to go, to different hospital because there is simply no room in the one they're h
